  1. I'm on a roll! Another instaget FJ for me. And now that I've said that, I'll probably not have a clue for tomorrow's, um, clue. I was surprised they missed Auburn -- I don't really follow college football, and I got that one. Advent was also a surprising TS, as Advent calendars are ubiquitous, at least in these parts. I also got egotist and lawyers, and was disappointed that no one knew lawyers. I guess the song was before their time... I'll miss Robert's ties.
  2. I didn't know there was a sequel! What's the title?
  3. I haven't tried it, and I don't plan on trying it, but I just heard about pumpkin spice mac & cheese, and it just sounds disgusting.
  4. I also like the new set, but agree that something else is different. Maybe it is the lack of audience. I'll try to pay more attention tonight and see if I can put my finger on what else feels different.
  5. Boys and girls took home-ec, typing, and wood shop in my small school in the back of beyond in Virginia in the late 70s. I am still terrified of anything with a moving blade, including electric knives!
  6. Instaget FJ tonight. I didn't even second-guess myself for once. I was surprised it was a "woman author", since the category was just American Authors! I like the new champ. Did he mean his tie was Lego? That's a little bit awesome. Too many TS tonight! I got dulcimer, clavichord, Rockies, cheese (c'mon, they said Wisconsin! Gotta be cheese!), censure, conjunction, Netherlands, methane, and radon. I have a dulcimer hanging on my wall (the strummed kind, not the hammered kind).
  7. I was meant to have a telephone appointment with my doctor at 4:20 this afternoon. It is now 8:10 at night, and my phone has not rung. I'm a little peeved, but at the same time am wondering if I gave them the correct phone number. I guess I'll try again tomorrow, but I hope they don't try to bill me for this one!
  8. Same. It was the first thing that came to mind, but I didn't think it could be right. I came up with Thailand just before time ran out. Which is better than I did trying to come up with Henry Miller -- I knew that one, but his name just would not come to me. I did manage to get starch and Fulton, though. Good game tonight -- not too many TS, but I did want Rashima to pick up the pace a little.
  9. Me, too. I got him, of course, along with kitchen, parlor, Nobel, and Great Wall. I also got all the Sound of Music answers right. I had to think about FJ for a bit, but finally focused on "Rome" and came up with the right answer.
  10. Dear dumb-ass girl in the bathroom, A. You just used the toilet. 2. We're in a pandemic. C. Two seconds of barely dampening your fingertips does not equal 20 seconds of sudsy soap! Wash your damn hands! (I did call her out on it, too, and she went back and actually washed. She rolled her eyes and gave me a dirty look, but she did wash her hands!)
  11. Read the book and skip the movie. The book is so much better. Yes, but they don't know for sure you haven't been to major corp #2, or even to the urgent care/med-express/whatever it's called where you live. Or even whether or not you've started taking some over-the-counter thing that might be helpful to know about. I discovered that I had to pay out-of-network for visiting one of those recently, so I'm sure the meds they prescribed are not included in my regular chart.
  12. Good luck to all of you who manage to endure the whole night. I'm happy for Catherine O'Hara and Eugene Levy, but I can't take Jimmy Kimmel any more. I feel like this is a concept that can work, but maybe with a different host.
  13. I just saw the most idiotic Allstate commercial. This woman rolled out of bed, wrapped in her blankets, then kept rolling through town, picking up all sorts of things (sod, garden hose, flowers, clean laundry, etc.) as she rolled. I don't get it.
  14. Probably easier -- they can just mute the speaker and turn off the video.
  15. I don't think I can take much more of this. The yelling across the stage was stupid -- they both have microphones for god's sake. Agreed that the fire bit, especially when it wouldn't stop burning, was NOT funny in the least.
  16. The shingles vaccine was on my mind for the past several months. I just procrastinated a tad too long. So the peeve for the day is that I'm a procrastinator.
  17. I wish I could! It was 36F when I got up this morning -- the dew on my car was frozen! I'm not quite ready for cold weather.
  18. That's what they gave me, and the meds seem to be helping. It's a bit less hurty, maybe a little more on the itchy/tingly side of pain. It's hard to tell if there's a difference in the rash, though.
  19. @Minaboo, don't bow out! Many of us have 0/5 weeks! It's all in good fun.
  20. It's 3 in the afternoon, and finally got to 58 degrees! It was a perfect mowing day, though -- bright and sunny, with a light breeze. I even wore a sweatshirt and barely got warm. It's meant to get down in the 30s tonight, and I'm not happy about that. Too early to be in the 30s!
  21. I thought Tuesday was an asterisk? Not that I got it, mind you....
